Your Best Writing May Not Be What You Think By Carolyn Howard-Johnson


One of the biggest writing problems I see among people in my mentoring
program, and others who hire me to improve their writing, is that they're
afraid to write like they talk.

They never use one-word sentences.


They refuse to start sentences with words such as "and" and "but" because an elementary teacher way back when told them not to.

They try to sound important when they write. So they use long words in long sentences that make up long paragraphs.

They remove all slang from their writing so it's clean and pure. And
often, boring.

Business coach Michael Angier agrees.

"Too many times, I see people who are good verbal communicators try to put
on a different air in their writing," he says. "It doesn't work. It's much
better to be conversational."

Writing like you talk is one of 13 tips Michael offers for writing clearly
and convincingly. It was one of the lead articles in an issue of
Joan Stewart's free subscription newsletter, The Publicity Hound.
Nina Amir's book, Wired for Story (http://bit.ly/Wired4Story), shows us how humans from times long before writing were storytellers and how we are indeed "wired for story." We also call it anecdote. It works for articles like this. It works for novels—great novels. And you'll see it appearing more and more often as part of news stories. Another book I recommend is Tom Chiarella's Writing Dialogue (http://bit.ly/Chiarella) published by Writer's Digest. You may find it inexpensively on Amazon's New and Used feature.
In the newest book in my multi award-winning HowToDoItFrugally Series of books for writing, How to Get Great Book Reviews Frugally and Ethically, I remind authors that the best blurbs and endorsements come from people who compliment their books and their style in off-the-cuff conversations. When asked to write a blurb or endorsement, their language becomes stiff, official—and unconvincing. I tell them to ask their contacts if they can use what their reader just said to them rather than having them back up and make it into a brittle, lifeless twig.

When authors keep in mind that their readers probably spent many years reading staid textbooks and prefer to learn what they need quickly, they'll find that their readers bond to them. To matter the genre or kind of copy, connection is an important word to consider. Think loyalty. Think bonding. It isn't more important, but think retention, too!

"Shining a Positive Light on Down Syndrome" - Focus on the Family interviews Robert & Trevor Hendershot on World Down Syndrome Day, Tuesday, March 21, 2017





From author Robert Hendershot:
 
Greetings to all of you who have been supportive of Trevor and me over the years...however briefly, recently or even many years ago! 
 
Trevor and I are going to be the subjects of an interview "Shining a Positive Light on Down Syndrome", that will air on Focus on the Family's international radio show broadcast on World Down Syndrome Day, this Tuesday, March 21.

Locally in Southern California, the show can be heard on KKLA 99.5 FM at 4:30, 7:30, 11:30 am and then 10:00 pm.

The show can also be listened to on-line by clicking the links below.
 
We've also formed a 501(c)3 non-profit www.angelsforhigher.org to help facilitate the "Trevorizing" of every sports stadium on planet earth, and thereby transforming the pro-life, special needs culture of the world...one sport stadium at a time.
 
In addition, we've revised, reformatted, retitled and redeemed our original book to Angel for Higher, which can be obtained from our website.
Amazon just indicated that Angel for Higher is the "#1 New Release in Special Needs Children's Health", yay!

While this designation probably won't result in 'Harry Potter-esque' sales numbers, if we can help one person in our target audience who's struggling with addictions and/or facing the challenges of raising a special needs child, then I will have been repaid "...for the years the locusts have eaten." (Joel 2:25)
 
Finally, Trevor and I were also recently invited to appear on a live radio interview on The Bottom Line show, hosted by Roger Marsh, on World Down Syndrome Day, 3/21, from 4:00 to 5:00 pm.
This show can be heard locally on KBRT AM 740, listened on-line at www.kbriteradio.com or later in podcast at www.thebottomlineshow.com.
 
"The Lord bless you and keep you; The Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace."
 
Bob and Trevor
 
 
On World Down Syndrome Day, March 21, 2017, Robert and his son Trevor, who has Down syndrome, will be the subjects of an interview "Shining a Positive Light on Down Syndrome" conducted by Focus on the Family's President Jim Daly and Co-host John Fuller, and then broadcast to millions of listeners across the USA and around the world.

 Mission Statement
 
"Angels for Higher will help facilitate the gainful employment of individuals with Down syndrome at sports stadiums across the United States and around the world."

                                                                                                                            Values Statement
 
"We believe that individuals with Down syndrome working in stadiums as both valuable employees and pro-life ambassadors will help the world appreciate how our omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent God has created each and every human being to be incredibly precious, infinitely valuable and eternally significant in His sight."   
 
This is an incredible book. I laughed and cried reading it. One of the statements that ministered to me was "Now that this has happened, God, how should I respond?"  ~Carla C.
 
ABOUT THE BOOK
 
Angel for Higher chronicles the joyfully inspirational journey of Robert Hendershot, a recovering alcoholic, and his son Trevor, who has Down syndrome, as they seek God's will for their lives.
 
The practical lessons God taught Robert in his recovery helped him to become a better father to Trevor, and vice versa, the spiritual lessons God taught him as Trevor's dad have helped him to remain sober since August 24, 1997.
 
During Trevor's early school years he was bullied and told he was worthless. Nevertheless, as a senior he was elected Homecoming King in the greatest landslide in his high school's history.
 
Trevor was also told that the best job he could ever hope for would be folding towels in a hotel laundromat. However, after graduating he was hired by Major League Baseball's Los Angeles Angels and by the National Hockey League's Anaheim Ducks to be the Greeter at their Team Stores.
 
Trevor's known, admired and often loved by hundreds of thousands of sports fans, fellow employees and professional athletes.
 
Robert and Trevor are in the process of forming a 501c3 non-profit corporation, Angels For Higher, to help facilitate the "Trevorizing" of additional stadiums and arenas. Their mission is to encourage the hiring of individuals with Down syndrome to work as greeters (and pro-life ambassadors) at sports venues across North America and ultimately around the world.
 
"Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we can ask or imagine…" (Ephesians 3:20)
